State law encourages districts to implement school-wide positive behavioral interventions or tiered frameworks.
Administrative Rules of Montana 37.87.1802 Comprehensive school and community treatment program:
(6) The school must describe the implementation of a school-wide positive behavior intervention and supports program, including, at a minimum, the following procedures:
- (a) identifying youth who exhibit inappropriate behaviors to the degree that a positive behavior intervention plan is needed and youth at risk of, or suspected to have need of, mental health services;
- (b) implementing and monitoring the progress of a positive behavior intervention plan for its effectiveness; and
- (c) referring youth to the CSCT program when positive behavior interventions and supports have not resulted in significant positive behavioral change or when a youth may have a clinical condition and may be in need of mental health services.
